CEOs make decisions that influence millions of us. Studying the words that they use every quarter in their earnings calls can give us the “pulse” of corporate leadership in North America and around the world. Learn more about the methods I use in my research here.


Earnings calls are teleconference meetings during which CEOs of public companies discuss their results with investors and analysts. Every quarter, thousands of CEOs answer tens of thousands of questions that often relate to current events.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, CEOs started discussing extensively topics related to the future of work, such as work from home, work-life balance, and hybrid work. Every quarter, I perform linguistic analyses on these discussions and extract meaningful insights that I use in my research and share in the media.
